I hope this free online becomes the new standard. (One can dream.)

Practically all PC games give you free updates. The only bastards to make us TRY to pay was Bethesda. And we fixed them by grabbing the updates from torrent sites.

Ok, i downloaded the game and I'm now trying to get ym free key, but when I finish step 2 it takes me back to step 1.

WTF

Edit - Ok, I changed some of my answers in the second part(mainly the one asking why I was interested in the game, I had answered because it was free), now I moved on to part 3 of the registration.

Bastards.

I still have to buy this game, I dont know whats keeping me from doing it. Probaly cause the price isnt dropping, I think its $20 now. Damn and I wanted it since it came out in October. Maybe for xmas

EDIT: Damn Alucard you lied to me, you can download FEAR Combat and still play, you dont need the game you big bully But im not going to d/l it anyways cause the file is too big and too many people are d/l it so its slow.

good lord! I wasnt expecting this -patch- to be 1.8gigs in size. No wonder you can play it without needing the game. It comes with the engine already. Thats pretty fucking hardcore right there. VERY impressive free gift.

Updates for PC games have always been free. Its them giving you reasons to buy their product by giving more content.
